Lilly PP: sometimes you win the lottery…
Where do we start writing this story… Lilly P, the Ladd P daughter was the first calf the Bakker family of Batouwe Holsteins ever bought in a public auction, they brought her home but did not dare to dream all that happened. The breeders got just one heifer calf out of her themselves, who was also named Lilly, but got something extra behind her name.. RED. And yes she was also polled, homozygous Polled. She developed into one of the nicest young cows ever seen at Batouwe Holsteins, so they took her to the show in Hoornaar, where she became Junior Champion Hoornaar. Yes, this cow was the Junior Champion in Hoornaar last year and also claiming the title for best udder in her class. For the people who think Hoornaar is just a regional Show, Hoornaar is quite a bit more than that, it is one the most competitive shows in the Netherlands where some of the best cows in the country make their appearance. How many class winning homozygous Polled cows has the world already seen? Well here is one of the very first.
Coming from the dynasty of the 1 Million dollar cow Lylehaven Lila Z. Lylehave Lila Z is a name almost every pedigree lover in the world has heard of. A family that has won shows at the absolute highest level in Toronto and Madison and a family that brought so many bulls including one of the very best bulls the Holstein breed has to offer today with Delta Lambda.
Batouwe Lilly Red reached the age of 4 years last week. 4 years is the minimum age cows have to be to get scored EXCELLENT and she did that as well.
Yes, sometimes you win the lottery…
